Whistler Newspaper Cover Photo

A photo that I shot at the 2011 World Ski and Snowboard Festival freestyle skiing event is featured as the May cover photo for SNAP Sea to Sky Newspaper. This photo is a group shot of the freestyle skiing athletes before the main event held on Saturday night in Whistler village. The World Ski and Snowboard Festival event is an annual celebration of sports and music held during the warmer spring season. This photo was shot with a Canon 5D Mark 2 body and a 16 MM to 35 MM 2.8 ultra wide angle lens using a diffused 580 EX2 Speedlite Flash. One of the greatest things for a Canadian photographer is having a photo used on the cover of the local newspaper. This is the 5th cover of SNAP Newspaper that has featured one of my photos across the last three years when I have been working as a photojournalist in Whistler, BC, Canada. The next challenge is to have a photo featured on the cover of a national newspaper publication.
